Aziz Ansari Uses Emojis to Remix Jay-Z & Kanye West Song

When he’s not sparking beef with Justin Bieber, battling Peter, Bjorn and John over mashed potatoes, and cracking jokes at Jay-Z and Coldplay afterparties, comedian Aziz Ansari appears on popular NBC show ‘Parks and Recreation,’ where he plays hip-hop party enthusiast Tom Haverford.

Though his ‘RAAAAAAAANDY’ mixtape, a joke inspired by his character in Judd Apatow’s dark comedy ‘Funny People,’ never materialized, Aziz recently enacted out the lyrics to Jay-Z and Kanye West‘s ‘N—-s in Paris’ using iPhone emojis — Japanese emoticons — which is pretty much the same thing.

You’re best-served reading Aziz’s texts, a conversation with buddy Matthew Shawver — the singer-songwriter? — along with the song, to get the full effect of their emoji translations of lines like “That s— cray.”

Check out Aziz and Shawver’s ‘N—-s in Paris’ emoji remix via Aziz’s Tumblr.

Jay-Z and Kanye’s ‘Watch the Throne‘ is in stores now.
